Day 5

This morning we took an awesome Aerial class! Aerial is NO joke. If you ever watch an Aerial performance and it looks easy to you, it’s not!!

Much respect for Aerialists and for our teacher who was very encouraging!

I loved this class because it was challenging like the Contemporary class. I pushed myself to do many of the movements and succeeded in most. But, DAMN, I had no idea the upper body strength needed for Aerial.

My partner Kourtney! She had a tough time doing some of the movements and I could see at some point she felt like giving up, but in the end she conquered the difficulty of the movements! Fall down seven times, stand up eight 🙂

I’m very grateful that I got to take an Aerial class with this beautiful group of women.

The younger group performing!

After the performance, one of the older girls asks if we can do the Bollywood dance again. I am really surprised that she, along with some of the older kids want to do it again. I put on Balam Pichkari (the song used for the choreography) and we bust out the moves one last time!
